Many border areas in Myanmar where some national races live are remote areas and controlled by anti-government forces for over many years. So, compared to urban areas, the development has been late.
Although the compromise between government and anti-government forces is accelerated recently and the social development in such areas began to start, the current situation is that many children still could not get opportunities for basic education because of infrastructure shortage and poverty in severely hit economic situations in such areas.
In the project of Saetanar for the rural development of Shan and Kayah States that are the frontier regions where the support of government and other private organizations has not reached enough up to now, the school construction and the farm village development projects are executed by the method of ”Residents participation” that the local populace plays a center role.
We aim to give opportunities for education to children carrying the future, to stabilize the frontier region socially and to contribute to the base for the future Myanmar development.
• Construction of school building in border areas of Myanmar (new building, renovation, extension) to assist the children from poorly developing regions in getting better opportunities for good education
• Community Development with income-generating activities in villages where new school building is constructed to maintain sustainable operation of the school
• Agriculture Development and Extension to improve the livelihood of the local community
Through the above activities, Saetanar practices the tranquility and community development of the regional society.
